The Experience


DK Effects Photography provides a full service boutique photography experience. You’ll be taken care of right from the beginning, and I’m here to help you through the entire process. My goal is to make sure you not only have an amazing session that leaves you with fun memories, but also to provide you with custom artwork and heirloom quality prints and products that will last a lifetime.

Prior to your session, we will go over your expectations to figure out what kind of images you have in mind. This gives me an idea of what images to make sure I get, and it gives you an idea of what to expect on the session day. During the process, I will also help guide you through figuring out the perfect location, preparing your family and pet for the session, coordinating outfits, and fitting it all to your family’s own personal style.

The session itself is very relaxed. Your family and your pet will be given some direction and posing suggestions, but I generally like to let your family interact naturally. Your pet will determine the flow of the session to keep it as natural and fun as possible. We will take our time to work with your pet, whether they are super excited or a little shy. Don’t be surprised if you’re asked to play some silly games. It’s all in good fun, and you may find yourself genuinely laughing and smiling!

About 4 weeks after your portrait session, I will come to your home for your reveal party where you will see all of your images for the first time. During your reveal party, you will get to pick your favorite images and products. You will have plenty of time to see all of the product samples and hold up images to different walls in your own home to see what would work best for you. Don’t worry if you’re not sure how to display your favorite images, I’ll be there to guide you through the process. We will also finalize your order that night so you can have your prints and products as soon as possible. Then once your order is in, I will personally deliver your amazing print products to you.
